Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee and Deputy Prime Minister LK Advani would be present at the swearing-in ceremony, party President M Venkaiah Naidu, who presided over the meeting, said altering the earlier plans to have the swearing ceremony on Wednesday.
Fresh from the victory, in his address to MLAs , he took a pot shot at the "anti-BJP" elements, who, he said, may not be in a position to "digest" BJP's success.
"I can understand what will be their condition after BJP's victory. They will not be able to digest it," he said.
Modi also took the opportunity to advise his main rival Congress to be "constructive" in their opposition so that the two together could take Gujarat to number one spot.
